║ Schools: Alabama, Auburn

For a couple of weeks it’s been rumored that running back Corey Grant would be transferring from Alabama to Auburn. This time the rumors were true. Grant starts summer school today on The Plains.
“I think sometimes you go to a place at the wrong time. Alabama is a great place. I learned a lot of things. I got better in a lot of areas I needed to improve on. I don’t leave Alabama with any hard feelings. I just felt like I would be a better fit at Auburn.”
Grant was one of the top players in the state of Alabama and — according to Rivals.com — the fifth-best all-purpose back in the country as a senior in high school. Now the Opelika native will be closer to home, though he’ll have to sit out this season.
While Grant says he has no hard feelings toward Alabama, it’s unlikely Crimson Tide fans will feel similarly.
